Clin Exp Pediatr. 2017;60(8):254-260.   Published online August 14, 2017
Purpose

Seasonal influenza can be prevented by vaccination. Disease prevention in children aged <60 months is of particular importance because of the associated familial and societal burden. Considering that caretakers make the decision to vaccinate their children, the identification of drivers and barriers to vaccination is essential to increase influenza vaccination coverage.

Methods

A total of 639 parents participated in the pre- and...

Evaluation of immunogenicity of the 2008-2009 seasonal influenza vaccines by microneutralization test
Seung Youn Kim, Yun Kyung Kim, Byung Wook Eun, Nam Hee Kim, Eun Kyeong Kang, Byong Sop Lee, Jung Sub Lim, Jun Ah Lee, Dong Ho Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(12):474-480.   Published online December 20, 2012
Purpose

For evaluating the immunogenicity of an influenza vaccine, the microneutralization (MN) test has a higher sensitivity and specificity as compared to the hemagglutination inhibition (HI) test. However, the MN test is more time consuming and is difficult to standardize. We performed the MN test to determine its usefulness as an alternative or complementary test to the HI test for evaluating...

Su Ye Sohn, Young Wooh Song, Yun Ku Yeo, Yun Kyung Kim, Gi Young Jang, Chan Wook Woo, Jung Hwa Lee, Kwang Chul Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(4):157-162.   Published online April 30, 2011
Purpose

Exaggerated pro-inflammatory reactions during the acute phase of Kawasaki disease (KD) suggest the role of immune dysregulation in the pathogenesis of KD. We investigated the profiles of T regulatory cells and their correlation with the clinical course of KD.

Methods

Peripheral blood mononuclear cells were collected from 17 KD patients during acute febrile and subacute afebrile phases. T cells expressing CD4, CD25,...

Case Report

Doo Il Song, Su Ye Sohn, Yun Kyung Kim, So Hee Eun, Young Jun Rhie, Gi Young Jang, Chan Wook Woo, Byung Min Choi, Jung Hwa Lee, Bo Kyung Je
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(5):657-660.   Published online May 31, 2010

Tuberculosis is primarily a pulmonary disease, but extra-pulmonary manifestations are not uncommon, especially in children and adolescents. Ten percent of extra pulmonary tuberculosis localizes to the bones and joints, and 56% of such cases affect the spine. We treated a childhood case of spinal tuberculosis misdiagnosed as muscular dystrophy in a patient without specific constitutional symptoms. We report this case...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(5):592-596.   Published online May 15, 2001
Five to fifteen percent of patients affected by human immunodeficiency virus(HIV) are children in developing countries. In Korea, most of HIV infections in children have been transfusion-related, and cases of vertical transmission have been very rare so far and are usually suspected due to a maternal positive history. We experienced a case of vertical transmission of HIV in a 19...
